IT IS NO SECRET – THE LIFE AND INSPIRATION OF REVEREND CLAY EVANS
Known as the “pastor of pastors”, Dr. Reverend Clay Evans' impact has reached far beyond the walls of Chicago's Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, the church that he founded in 1950. Rev Evans was as a leader in the Civil Rights movement, an award-winning Gospel Music artist, a trailblazer in broadcast ministry, and a mentor to many other ministers. This 38-minute tribute video interweaves existing oral history interviews, archival photos, What a Fellowship Hour broadcasts, and Gospel choir performances into a celebration of this legendary spiritual leader.

THE BIRTH OF A TEMPLE GARDEN
When noted Japanese landscape designer Hoichi Kurisu was invited to design a new temple garden for Chicago's Midwest Buddhist Temple, our camera was there to document the process. This short commissioned documentary interweaves Hoichi Kurisu's reflections on Japanese culture, nature and spirituality with observations of the very physical and creative process that transforms a narrow patch of land into an inspired space for healing and meditation.
